1- Departure: Ålesund Pier
The Art nouveau town of Ålesund is a perfect starting point for excursions in the beautiful surroundings. It is the largest city in the province of Møre og Romsdal and it has a unique setting across several islands streching out into the Atlantic Ocean. Destroyed in 1904 by a devastating fire it is now noted for its concentration of Art Nouveau style.
From the top of the city mountain Aksla there is a panoramic view of the beautiful town center, the archipelago and the Sunmøre Alps. From Aksla you can walk 418 steps down to the town park.
3- Parken Culture House
It was opened on the occasion of the city’s 150th anniversary in 1998. The decorations were made by a local artist, Ole Lislerud.
4- Art Nouveau Centre
It is both museum and national centre of Art Nuveau. It offers insight into this style by means of authentic interiors and objects as well as temporary exhibitions.
